Here they are, July blooms! I don't have a lot going on, but I'm going to play along with Garden Bloggers Bloom Day anyway.
The stars of the garden right now are the Black Eyed Susans. Most of these are wild, and were here when I moved in. Since I don't mow my super shady lawn very often, they have gone to seed and have started to spread. They dot my walkway, and show up wherever they please. They're hardy little guys, and I plan on adding more in the future.
Another cute little wildflower that is blooming right now is this wild sweet pea.
The impatiens in my new window boxes are looking great, and this Creeping Jenny from a plant swap is pretty happy too.
My transplanted ditch lilies haven't been very showy this year, but the Australian & Tiger Lilies I got from my grandparents are blooming.
Some of you may know that I tried my hand at starting plants from seed this year. I started my zinnias late, but they are finally starting to bloom, and the colors are bright and happy.
My asters are cute, but not nearly what I thought they were going to be. They are supposed to be tall and have 3" blooms, but they're short and the blooms are about 1" wide. They're cute, but I guess I have a ways to go amending the soil in this area.
So there you have it, a look at what's blooming in my yard. It's not where I want it to be, but it's growing and not dying, so I'll take it!
